Tuesday

Not much to write about this week, just a few bits and bobs. I may work the Vlieland photos into videos, will have a look at that tonight.

This morning I jumped on the bike and went down the hill to Arnhem, 3 miles or 20 minutes away. Needed to buy some shirts. The cuffs of my previous ones were destroyed by a corroded watch - sounds strange perhaps, but my corrosive perspiration had taken the outer layer off my watch, leaving a rough edge. This rubbed against the cuffs of my shirts, taking away the stitchings. Rather unsightly.

At coffeetime, a relative came to call, and we had a couple of hours of chat. The weather was quiet, not too cold, not too warm, about 70F.

Sometimes it's nice to not have anything going on, to just chill out.
I hope you got your shirts.
Sounds like you had a nice visit over a cup of coffee.
Hugs

Put some clear nail varnish on the metal bits and it should stop the corrosion.  I have to do this with some watches as they irritate my skin and i get sore and itchy.
I suggest you might like to get a female friend to buy it for you.
